Presented by Virginia Repertory Theatre, Little Red Hen is based on the traditional folk storybook with music and lyrics by Ford Flannagan.
The virtual performance will be presented Tuesday, April 13 at 7 p.m.
“Who’ll help me plant the seed?” asks the plucky red hen as she begins the process that goes into making a loaf of her delicious bread. “Not us,” said the sheep, the cow, the horse, and the pig. They all have better things to do. But, “a hen’s gotta do what a hen’s gotta do,” and so our crimson heroine perseveres until her work is done. But, the tricks of the conniving fox combine with the hen’s common sense to add adventure and a sound moral lesson to this classic, feel-good, foot-stompin’ country musical. Best for audiences K-5. Available to view for free on the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre Facebookpage. This program is supported by a grant from the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County.
